    Used to be a great company, but fast growth has really changed it, unfortunately not for the good.

    Pros

    Great benefits including profit sharing. Most positions allow for good work/life balance (it's up to you if you want to put in longer hours). Leadership is passionate about employees and culture. Very collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Fast growth has made for outdated systems and processes, and there are never enough resources to do everything that's being asked, no matter how many employees they keep hiring - and there's a lot of overlap and inefficiency in job responsibilities. It's almost like the super fast pace hasn't allowed leadership to actually strategically plan - even though they talk constantly like they have. Culture is also becoming more and more political and "corporate" every day - it's not the small family company environment that it once was, no matter how much leadership tries to pretend that it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking the talk, but walk the walk too. Stop selling your soul to big customers who are getting "too big too fail" and are starting to force you into all sorts of poor decisions.
